Moko Moai Tiki Mug w Pendant
Tiki Farm writes, "We proudly present to you “Moko Moai” designed by Benzart! Moko Moai is a replica of an original Benzart sculpture. Moko Moai is Ben’s vision of a hybrid version of an Easter Island Moai and a Maori Tiki, evidenced by the traditional heavy Maori tattooing (also known as “Moko”). You can see how we refer to Ben’s unique ability to bring out human facial characteristics in this wonderful design – it is breathtaking. The entire exterior is glazed in our traditional “Tiki” gloss brown with green eyes and a green interior. It has been a long time since we’ve glazed a Tiki Farm open edition mug’s entire exterior surface in all gloss brown, but with this particular mug, the design is so engaging that we wanted to keep the focus on the design and not on the glaze. Moko Moai is further embellished with a green (we were going for faux jade) Tiki pendant cast in resin that we made from a direct pull of one of Benzart’s pendant carvings. The price of the mug includes this wonderful added pendant. Isn’t that awesome!?! Moko Moai is also a very large mug, measuring 8 3/8” in height and having a liquid capacity of just over 16 fluid ounces.
